Tupac’s Sister Has Kids With Tupac’s Outlawz Group Member, Fans Stunned
Tupac’s Younger Sister
The world knows Tupac, but most never knew his younger sister, whom he was very close to and highly protective of. ‘Pac’s sister is four years his junior and they share the same mother, the late Afeni Shakur, but they have different fathers.
Her name is Sekyiwa Shakur, but her close loved ones refer to her by her nickname, ‘Set.’ The 44 year old sis’ of Tupac was also portrayed in his biopic, All Eyez On Me, in which ‘Pac referred to her as ‘Seky’ in the movie.

Tupac’s Sister, Sekyiwa Shakur Now…
The entire time we watched Tupac become the iconic larger than life rap artist in the 90’s, Sekyiwa preferred staying behind the scenes. That’s why it wasn’t until after ‘Pac’s passing that his fans got a brief glimpse of Set, when she made a couple public appearances in honor of her big brother.
Her low key profile is also why most of us never knew she has two children with a 90’s rapper who was very close to ‘Pac. So close in fact, that he’s often described ‘Pac as being ‘like a brother’ to him and he had a tremendous amount of love for him.

This week marks 20 years since the murder of Tupac Shakur. Although his career was short, his legacy lives on, as fans continue listening to his music, and continue supporting his struggle against systemic oppression. In 2011, I photographed Tupac's sister, Sekyiwa Shakur, for Atlanta Magazine's story on his life and legacy. As a hip-hop fan and photographer it was a dream assignment. Sekyiwa was lovely and shared some amazing stories about growing up with her older brother. #TupacShakur #Tupac #2Pac #2PacShakur #AtlantaMagazine #Portrait #MakePortraits #Sekyiwashakur #TBT #2011
